In the beginning, there was darkness as you get closer to the bed. You see a video game controller, shoes, on the floor. The bed sheets begin to rustle feet moving side to side laying on his back. You see a teenage boy whose facial expression keeps on changing as if he's having a bad dream. The boy eyes open seeing a blurry red number blinking more,

The numbers clear up showing thirty-three in the morning. The boy tries to move his arm to rub his eyes and feel on his throat because he was starting to have a hard time breathing. Little grunting, whimpering Trying to move his fingers or even his arms felt as if each finger and arm is shackled down and going numb. 

Then he tries to move his legs they felt exactly the same way. The boy begins to worry more now realizing he's unable to move his whole body. The bed squeaks a little like someone or something is climbing on. The numb feeling gets worse and covers his hole body like a blanket the boy feels wrapped tightly to the bed from head to toe. 

A heavy pressure feeling falls on him like a two hundred pound person sitting on top of him. He painfully yet slowly moves his head with what little strength and breath try looking down. Thanks to the little light coming from the clock he sees his sheets normally covering him. wondering to himself what could it be that's making me feel like this suddenly he sees a slight shadow movement lowering onto his body. Bump bump his heart starts to beat faster now feeling a presence near him. 

Slowly looking up it gets darker and shapes of a dark figure person forming. Looking at the ceiling seeing only darkness a bit of relief came over him. In a flash, these dark cat yellow evil eyes appear staring back at him then turning a dark red color. The surprise sends a shock down his spine follow by sweat. Panicking seeing does dark red evil eyes glaring at him. Still trying to move he lightly feels cold hands wrapping around his throat but certainly feels the heavy pressure of them. 

Open his mouth to gasp for air and scream only brief letters where coming out H...E...L mouth feeling dry like being in the desert for days without water and sweating like it too. A sinister smile slowly starts to appear underneath the red cat-like eyes than yellow fang-like teeth slowly start to show from the smile. Laying there feeling powerless the boy eyes slowly close and he stops trying to speak or even struggle appears the boy soul is leaving his body. 

A Light comes from underneath his door the evil red eyes slowly turn to look towards the door facing it doing so a faint shape of a head appears with two horns. The hands lifted the boy gasped for air his soul came back to his body. The dark figure quickly turns back to look at the boy with does sinister eyes now turn into an angry expression pressing back on his throat. The light underneath the door shines brighter in an instant the door creaks open a little bit just as fast as it opens it shuts the same the dark shadow just vanished. The boy quickly gets up gasping for air feeling on his throat with his hand looking around his dark room thinking was this real or a nightmare?

    I would say it's realistic more so than dark. The story gets little brighter in couple chapters. I wrote it that way because I know people have experience situation similar to this. Kinda gives the reader a chance to be in there shoes.
